Tiffin University (18-13, 6-2 GLIAC) battled all day but came up just short of posting a sweep of Davenport, falling 1-0 in the opener before bouncing back for a 6-2 win in game two.
She got run support in the third inning, when Brooke Lambert singled, and advanced to third on a wild pitch and sacrifice. Sierra Besser-Paul then hit a foul sacrifice fly down the left field line that plated Lambert.
TU blew the game open in the fifth inning with five runs. Lambert opened with a home run to left field. Jamie Sevenish then walked and after a Besser-Paul single, both runners moved up on an error by the third baseman. Lindsay Graves's bunt attempt led to a throwing error at third base that scored Sevenish. Alayna Lytle then cleared the bases with a triple and subsequently scored on April Bennett's single to make it 6-0.
In the sixth inning, a bases loaded walk chased Bogard as Kimmy Reynolds came in in relief. She got a ground out to second to end the threat. She closed out the seventh inning to get the save.
Lambert had a strong game with 3 hits including a home run, while Bennett and Ally Rock both had two hits.
In the opener, Reynolds threw a gem, going 7 innings and allowing just 5 hits and 1 earned run while fanning 9, but simply got outpitched by Mallory Teunisson, who allowed just 4 hits, no runs, no walks, and fanned 11.
The long extra base hit came from Besser-Paul with a double. Davenport got its lone run with a double followed by a single in the sixth inning. TU could not manage a baserunner over the final 3.1 innings of play as Teunisson was just too tough.
